From IMDB:When the ancient continent of Mu sank beneath the ocean, some of its inhabitant survived in caverns beneath the sea. Cowboy singer Gene Autry stumbles upon the civilization, now buried beneath his own Radio Ranch. The Muranians have developed technology and weaponry such as television and ray guns. Their rich supply of radium draws unscrupulous speculators from the surface. The peaceful civilization of the Muranians is corrupted by the greed from above, and it becomes Autry's task to prevent all-out war, ideally without disrupting his regular radio show.

And who's to say it isn't a true story!
First saw this incredible serial on early TV in the early 1950s. Even as a kid I thought the robots were cheezy, but was awed by Queen Tika and her noble, fatalistic approach to the end of Muranina and her own life. HAIL MURANIA! LONG LIVE (at least in the digital universe) QUEEN TIKA!

Just for kids...
...or the kid in all of us. Gene is always Gene. Love him like a hero. Really liked Frankie Darro (Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet). Brings back memories... of a better time.
